Bella comes to New Albany

Sorry for the delay in blogging about this movie.

It has had a limited release, including last weekend at Tinseltown and StonyBrook in Louisville-- and this weekend at Great Escape in New Albany.

I haven't seen the movie, but it has received some acclaim as the winner of the People's Choice Award at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival.

Three articles of interest to pass along:

1.) From Chuck Colson's "BreakPoint", a focus on the film's imagery and its character development (hat tip: Linda Christiansen)

2.) From Mark Moring in Christianity Today, an article on the life transformation of the movie's primary actor, Eduardo Verástegui (and less so, about director/writer, Alejandro Monteverde), entitled "Latin Lover No More" (hat tip: Chris Snider)

3.) An overview of the movie from Rebecca Hagelin at Heritage from

If you've seen it, please comment!

Just saw it tonight with my dad. Great story and an even better ending. Dad and I both thought the ending was a bit predictable, but it didn't take away from the message at all, in my opinion. The tagline for the movie "True love is more than romance" is perfect. Agape. ;)

Unfortunately there were only 6 of us total in the theater...on the Friday evening after Thanksgiving.

I would definitely see another Metanoia film.
